Pet Friendly

There’s no need to leave your beloved furry family member behind when you visit Frederick County. Pack up the car and bring your puppy with you for the ride to find pet-friendly hotels, pet-friendly restaurants, and more. 

Pet-Friendly Parks

Frederick County’s sprawling parks are great places to enjoy the outdoors with man’s best friend. From the paved paths of Baker Park in Downtown Frederick to the scenic mountain terrain of Catoctin Mountain Park and the Appalachian Trail, there is something to challenge even the most active dog and owner. 

Pup Cups and Calf Feeding

Dogs are welcome when you visit South Mountain Creamery near Middletown. Enjoy a pup cup with Fido and bottle feed the calves (calf feeding reservations are required). 

Tasty Brews and Wagging Tails 

Many craft breweries are dog friendly and some even have events throughout the year geared toward welcoming you and your best friend. Monocacy Brewing Company features expansive outdoor green space under the shade of 100-year-old trees, where your canine companion can chew a stick while you sip a beer. 

Show off your pup on a walk along Carroll Creek Park in Downtown Frederick before ordering drinks at Idiom Brewing Company or Steinhardt. 

Go Shopping Along With Your Furry Friend 

Many shops throughout Frederick warmly welcome pets with water bowls and treats. Luv Pup and the Trail House carry pet-themed merchandise.
